The owner is very helpful with lots of information about things to do, must-sees and how to get there. A really good place for first time visitors to the Lake District, being close to a... More

We must agree with you there are lots of places to visit if you like the outdoor life, beaches, fells, a castle, steam engines, boats etc. We are glad you found your room comfortable and that you enjoyed your stay with us. More

As the school holidays drew to an end, my wife and I decided that we could do with a short break before returning to the classrooms. We wanted somewhere quiet, cosy, rural but with access to a beach for our 2yr old son and dog and also close to some attractions for days out walking. We stumbled across Wayside guest... More

I can only say....Amazing!!! Highly recommended. Steve and Lynn are great hosts. Whitbeck location is perfect too for exploring the great sights and sounds of Lake District. It is within close proximity to the great towns of Kendal, Windermere, Coniston etc.

GREAT food, relaxed and friendly hosts, quiet and beautiful surroundings. And of course the obligatory visit from the lovely dogs. A real joy to break up our journey home from the Highlands in this sophisticated hideaway. Cleanliness and order is unsurpassed. Do not let it's distance from the main put you off...it is well worth the extra few miles. Thanks... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay at The Wayside in the very capable hands of Stephen and Lynn. The standard of the work carried out over the years to turn the dilapidated barn into luxurious accommodation is a credit to both of them.

We stayed for 3 nights and had a really comfortable stay in this lovely B&B. The beds were comfy and the bathroom was very modern as was the whole building but still retained that historic farmhouse feel.

The Wayside is very nicely located close to the seaside so it's easy both to go to the beach and to go to the mountains. Also other places of the Lake District such as Windermere are easily accessible by a drive through stunning landscapes.
